War in Ukraine

As a community of human rights organisations HRDN absolutely condemns Russia’s armed aggression against Ukraine.  HRDN has compiled resources from our members, partners and international organisations to help follow the unfolding crisis and international response, as well as resources on how to help the people of Ukraine.

How you can help the people of Ukraine : Interactive map

In the midst of the constant flow of information, and faced with uncertainty, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and powerless, but we can all contribute to supporting the people in Ukraine in these difficult times. This interactive map will show you various ways to help, including hosting a refugee in your home, providing funds to aid relief efforts, supporting independent Ukrainian media, and more.

As the situation in Ukraine unfolds, the needs of citizens in the country and neighbouring regions are sure to change. We will be keeping this resource up to date with the ways you can help respond to the evolving needs.

People In Need : Ukraine emergency response : we are helping refugees at the Ukrainian border and in Lviv More than half a million people fleeing from Ukraine to neighbouring countries desperately need our help. People in Need is already building facilities for them, providing food, hygiene supplies, and psychosocial assistance, mainly on the border with Slovakia. At the crossings with Moldova and Romania, it financially supports and coordinates local NGOs that help refugees on their arduous journey.

ILGA-Europe : We are working to support Ukrainian LGBTI people and activists, activists in neighbouring countries who are providing shelter and assisting with relocation, and activists in Belarus and Russia who are impacted by increasing crackdowns on dissent and by the sanctions.
